“These Boots Are Made For Walkin” is one of those magical songs. Released in 1966, this song hit #1 that year. Nancy Sinatra’s catchy song became an anthem for women, but also for the troops in Vietnam. And, on a more minor note, her fashion for the album and her appearances made white go-go boots the must-have item at the time.

Lee Hazlewood intended to record the song himself, saying that "it's not really a girl's song", but Sinatra talked him out of it, saying that "coming from a guy it was harsh and abusive, but was perfect for a little girl to sing". Hazlewood agreed. Sinatra's recording of the song was made with the help of Los Angeles session musicians known as the Wrecking Crew. This session included Chuck Berghofer on double bass, providing the notable bass line with its quarter-tonedescent.
Other personnel, as seen in the American Federation of Musicians(AFM) contracts for the session include:
The single was released in December 1965, the second song to be taken from her debut album Boots, and was a follow-up to the minor hit "So Long, Babe". The song became an instant success and in late February 1966 it topped the Billboard Hot 100chart, a move it replicated in similar charts across the world. Billboard described the song as "fine folk-rock material" and praised Sinatra's vocal performance and "the Billy Strange driving dance beat." Cash Boxdescribed it as a "funky, slow-shufflin...

In 1992, Billy Ray Cyrus covered the song. Cyrus's version is a bit more flippant and the song's success was quite modest, though the lyrics were not changed. For the first time the cover appeared on the album Some Gave All. Later, the cover can also be found on the compilation De Nationale Voorjaars CD 1993, Alle 40 goed – Country and The Definitive Collection.
Jessica Simpson recorded her own version of "These Boots Are Made for Walkin'" (and added her own lyrics) for the soundtrack to the film The Dukes of Hazzard (2005). The version was also included in the international version of her fifth studio album, A Public Affair (2006). Simpson's cover was co-produced by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis and was released as the soundtrack's first single on June 20, 2005. It became Simpson's fifth top-20 single in the United States, and its music videodrew controversy because of its sexual imagery.
American heavy metal band Megadeth covered the song on their 1985 debut album Killing Is My Business... and Business Is Good!, which is track four on the original release and eight on the 2002 re-release. Their version (entitled "These Boots") featured altered lyrics, and was produced more as a parodythan a true cover. When the album started selling well, the writer of the song, Lee Hazlewood, began demanding that the song be omitted, due to its being a "perversion of the original". Megadeth guitarist and frontman Dave Mustaine made the point that Hazlewood had been paid royalties for years before he made the complaint, although Mustaine eventually omitted the song anyway from newer pressings of the album. When the album was remixed in 2002, a censored version of the song was included as a bonus track. In 2011, an uncensored live version recorded in 1987 was released as part of the 25th anniversary edition of the album Peace Sells... but Who's Buying?. In 1987, Megadeth re-recorded...
